Nick wants Silva, Silva wants Nick, everyone wants to see Silva vs Nick.

Silva probably doesn't have many fights left, lets make them interesting.

predictions for UFC on FOX? i don't really have any, but--

bader will be a tough out, but hopefully machida's backpedaling / striking game will be enough to take down the beast. because as the only man to take a round off of jones, i'd like to see machida get another crack.

hua's still a top fighter, but aging and exposed at this point. but let's see him beat vera and go on one last run. TBH, both he and vera probably need to retire sooner rather than later.

i'd like to see davis take down prado. mister wonderful at least has the future potential to be a half-decent jon jones opponent. or maybe just a worthy opponent for gustafsson / teixeria. but at least he's got some upside.

hard for me to get real excited about the other fights...

^ definitely a nasty gash that likely needed stitches. i could see why he would have to pull out. that thing would open up easily. still, why not use headgear when you spar? there's enough injuries as there is and racking up scar tissue when you train is just...wow

Rumor-Anderson is considering vacating the middeweight title and dropping to 170 then Machida will drop to 185

edit-sherdog has been down for a while maybe its true

Thank you, Dana.


diaz has never been KO'd tho, right? and he is as good at constantly striking unorthodox all match and making the opponent work as anyone in MMA correct me if i'm wrong...i don't even think the size/weight difference would be that bad but i guess i'd have to see them next to each other.

either way i'd rather see them fight than most of the other alternatives. only dream match i'd like to see more is GSP vs Silva, or Jon Jones vs Silva....

Just checked Sherdog. That guy made 1 post and had no source, so it looks like mere speculation/what he wants to happen.

He's been TKO'd twice (one was a cut stoppage and the other was early in his career).

You have to earn title shots. Overeem is one of my favorite fighters, but he shouldn't get the next title shot just because JDS now wants to fight him due to some trash talking. He should go face Velasquez first.
